  2. It's a really beautiful dress and I love the original design. It does show alot of skin though. I know many school proms have bans on dresses showing too much skin so make sure she gets it cleared if her school has such a thing so this lovely dress won't be wasted.

    1. Hey Tina, I know...I heard the same thing on the news and I did ask her if it was o.k. with her school...but, you know teenagers...she just said, "yeah...like why wouldn't it be...?" UGH! To be young and dumb, again. I look forward to laughing about this dress years from now...smile.

  3. Tell me about, no restrictions at school as far as the dress is concern. Her Aunt TT will use good judgement! On the other hand to be young and 18 and skinny ......priceless
